8th ACM Celebration of Women in Computing
Virtual in CET timezone (with collocated on-site activities if possible)
from Prague, Czech Republic, on 22-24 September 2021
Open to all genders, womENcourage™ initiated by ACM-W Europe is aimed at connecting women from diverse technical disciplines and encouraging them to pursue their education and profession in computing.
womENcourage 2021 Conference Theme: Bridging Communities to Foster Innovation
This year’s ACM womENcourage 2021 is celebrating all attempts to bridge communities to foster innovation. We are celebrating bridges built across boundaries of disciplines, boundaries between industry and academia, as well as boundaries among homogeneous communities, inviting individuals of all genders, nationalities and ages to co-create together.
Why join the conference?
To find (1) inspiration and connection, (2) challenge and validation, (3) encouragement and support, (4) purpose, and (5) opportunity.

Needs, challenges and experiences of women in STEM: Best practices from Higher Education and the Industry
Keynote Speaker: Androulla Vasiliou, Former European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism & Youth
“Increasing the participation of women in STEM, both in academia and in business, will improve science, will reduce women’s social exclusion and will increase European competitiveness”
We are inviting Higher Education academics, educators, students, professionals, teachers, policymakers, experts and stakeholders at national or EU levels relevant in the area of female empowerment in the fields of STEM in Higher Education and the industry to join our event!
Event Programme shorturl.at/gnpP7
Are you a male or female working in the #STEM sector? If yes, we need your support by participating in our online #survey for #FeSTEM Project! http://shorturl.at/uAJL1
The project entitled «Female Empowerment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in Higher Education» (funded by #erasmusplus) aims to promote an innovative method pedagogy that will allow HE students to use traditional and computationally-rich media to create meaningful, shareable exhibits that will act as mentoring models for encouraging girls and women to remain active in STEM.

CFPs: Special Issue in Computers in Human Behavior on “Emerging Technologies for Artifact Construction in Learning”
Call for Papers for a special issue in Computers in Human Behavior
“Emerging Technologies for Artifact Construction in Learning”
It is our pleasure to announce the call for papers for the special issue in Computers in Human Behavior journal titled “Emerging Technologies for Artifact Construction in Learning”. Submissions are invited on studies that delineate how constructionism and social constructionism can ground the use of emerging technologies for learning.
1) Dr. Antigoni Parmaxi [http://antigoniparmaxi.weebly.com/]
2) Prof. Panayiotis Zaphiris [http://www.zaphiris.com]

FOCUS OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE
The Innovating Pedagogy 2016 report claims that we are at the beginning of a learning revolution (i.e., a new era that builds and extends the impact of technology in learning in new and unanticipated ways). The goal of this special issue is to bring together different facets of emerging technologies and ground their use under the theoretical framework of constructionism. This special issue aims to include not only innovation on the use of different features of emerging technologies, but also on practices and strategies employed by practitioners and instructional designers as well as their impact on human behavior. This special issue is not constrained in the discipline of Technology-Enhanced Learning. Research on interface design, security concerns arising from the use of emerging technologies are also welcome.
MOTIVATION FOR THE SI
Many recent well-known successful educational activities around the world rely on emerging technologies such as social media, virtual and augmented reality, embodied technologies and mobile applications and their impact on human behavior. This special issue echoes the growing research trend towards innovations in the use of emerging technologies and makes an effort to delineate how constructionism and social constructionism ground their use. Constructionism was chosen as a theory of learning, teaching, and design that aligns well with the demands and expectations of computational culture, and emphasizes building, creating and making of shared and meaningful artifacts as a means for gaining knowledge (Papert, 1980; 1993).
POSSIBLE TOPICS OF INTEREST
This special issue will welcome contributions on the following, though not exhaustive, list of topics:
- How can emerging technologies embody constructionist/social constructionist elements and transform educational activities?
- How can different features of emerging technologies support the construction of an artifact that can be meaningful to its constructors?
- How do learners engage in meaningful artifact construction within different emerging technologies?
- What behavioral patterns do learners display in a constructionist/social constructionist environment?
TIMELINE FOR SUBMISSION
Submission portal will be open from 15th November 2017 to 30th April 2018
Submission deadline: 30th April 2018
Author notification: September 30th, 2018
